Swim Every Day at our New Aquatic Center
Dive into endless aquatic adventures at Camp Isidore Alterman! Every day, campers have the option to enjoy the thrill of free swim at our brand-new aquatic center, featuring a zero-entry pool, in-pool sundeck, an exhilarating water slide, and so much more! Cool off, make a splash, and have a blast in a safe and supervised environment.
Celebrate with Friends
Our Boker Tov (good morning) time together each morning is one of many ways our campers meet new friends and spend time with old ones! Every morning, the whole camp joins together for songs, cheers, and fun. Each Friday is filled with ruach (spirit) as campers enjoy a Shabbat celebration. In these special moments, MJCCA Day Camps is filled with campers making lifelong bonds and feeling a true sense of community.
Shop the Shuk
Our Shuk is the highlight of every week at camp. Run by campers in our Chaverim Program for teens with special needs, the Shuk allows campers to strengthen their decision-making and social skills as they exchange shekels (coins) for goodies like entertaining toys and delicious snacks. For campers who run the Shuk, this experience fosters independence, helps improve communication skills, increases pride, offers responsibility, and gives them the chance to chat with fellow campers.
Camp Isidore Alterman is packed with a diverse array of activities to suit every camper’s interests and passions. Sharpen your archery skills, scale the heights of our rock climbing wall, and conquer the challenging ropes courses. Feel the adrenaline rush as you zip line through the treetops and join your fellow campers in exciting team-building activities that foster cooperation and friendship. Find peace and balance during our yoga sessions in our lakeside yoga treehouse, and channel your competitive spirit with a variety of sports.
For a splash of fun, hop on the bumper boats or navigate Lake RB in a canoe. Unleash your inner warrior in Krav Maga classes, and let your creativity shine on the stage with drama and dance activities. Explore the realms of STEAM through engaging projects and experiments. Experience the joy of outdoor cooking and creating savory snacks with friends.
